Roto-Rooter Plumbers 2/24/12

I just had a Kitchen drain clog removed by a Detroit area (Westland, MI) Roto-Rooter plumber. The process was extremely easy. The technician was on time, courteous, and fast.

I called Roto-Rooter to come out and look at a leaking drain from my bathtub. The galvanized pipe had to be replaced (which I already knew). Dave came out and gave us an honest assessment of the problem, giving me an accurate cost and time estimate (he estimated it would take him three hours to completely remove the drain and add new PVC pipe and it only took him two hours). There was no pressure to sign a contact immediately. I have young twin girls and he was respectful of the noise volume, trying to get the loud work out of the way so they could go down for naps later. The job was completed with excellent worksmanship and Dave walked me through everything he did upon completion. If you need a plumber in the Detroit area I would definitely recommend Roto-Rooter.

Quality Service for a Great Price

A Roto-Rooter Plumber arrived bright and early at my home today to repair a longstanding problem I was having with my bathroom sink. Roger was an excellent technician, very personable, respectful, and knew exactly what he had to do to get the job done. His customer service and his ability to dissect the problem quickly was beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend this service and I also would highly recommend anyone requesting Roger to take care of your plumbing needs. Roto Rooter is great!

Roto-Rooter cleans drains and does plumbing in Detroit area.

February 20, 2012
Roto-Rooter was out to my home today and they were efficient and thorough with the job that needed to be done. This job was to repair a water leak. I wasn't aware that Roto-Rooter had such a vast complement of plumbers in the Detroit area. I guess I always associated Roto-Rooter with drain cleaning and not plumber work. This was a pleasant surprise for them to do the work both well and cost effectively.

roto-rooter = a big thumbs down

Erik F. came out and replaced our stationary tub & trap. That all was well, what wasn't was the mess that was left on the basement floor. For a company that promotes ""maid-like cleanup"" this was far from it. We weren't expecting perfection but there was a cement trail all the way up the stairs and a disgusting film left all in fron of the laundry area. Would never recommend.
Will be looking for a different plumber in the Detroit area the next time an issue arises!

Aaron #377 at Roto-Rooter

Aaron came to our house today because we had a back-up in the drain of our basement whenever any water was running (shower, bath, etc) for over 10 minutes. My husband is very handy and tried all the tricks of the trade to get the blockage out himself, but it was too far from to drain to locate it. Aaron was extremely courteous, quick, and helpful! He located the problem within minutes and even waived the video fee for us. He cleared the clog quickly and even showed us the water running out of the water main to the street as how it should always look. He showed us how the drains were inter-connected and what he found on the video of our pipes. We could not have asked for better service from Aaaon and Roto-Rooter. If any other problems should occur, we will contact Roto-Rooter and ask specifically for Aaron. We can't thank you enough, Aaron!

Good service, not so good price

My toilet backed up, and after plunging for a while, the nasty water decided to back up into our tub. We called Roto Rooter, and they were able to come in the morning. Eric F, technician #363, was very nice and did a thorough job, replacing the cast iron stack, snaking it, then using the video camera to make sure there weren't any other issues. As other reviews have mentioned, it was pricey, but overall I was pleased with the service.

The plumber from Detroit's Roto-Rooter did a fantastic job! He arrived promptly and worked efficiently. Although the job took longer than expected, Eric was fabulous! I will certainly call them the next time I have plumbing problems!

TRotohis was a one stop shop

I knew I needed a new laundry tub, but wasn't aware that my hot water heater was 15 years old. Do I wait for water to be all over my basement...not fun. They replaced my laundry tub and supplied a new water heater for me. It was helpful for me that I didn't have to go shop for these items and then have them installed. They had them readily available, with warrenty protection. The two men who did my work were very professional, one being an experienced plumber. Will be calling Roto-Rooter for future jobs!
